Ever since Avicci’s massive hit “Wake Me Up” featuring Aloe Blacc, country-folk EDM has blown up. Zedd and Maren Morris’ “The Middle” dominated last year, with Alesso ft. Florida Georgia Line & Hailee Steinfeld on “Let Me Go,” and Audien featuring Lady Antebellum “Something Better” also faring well. Now, OneRepublic and Galantis are hoping to make their mark in the genre with their catchy new bop.
The Swedish duo and the Ryan Tedder-fronted band team up for “Bones.” Tedder’s vocals over the vibrant folky beats are sublime. It’s bound to do some damage during the upcoming festival season.
“You bring an energy I’ve never felt before / Some kind of chemical that reaches to my core / Feels like, as far as / you and me, I’ve never had a choice / You feel like home, mmm,” Ryan sings on the track.
Give it a listen below.
